We are happy to announce Between these threads of time by Joanna Vymeris, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Joanna Vymeris recently graduated in History of Art from Cambridge University in July 2016. This academic endeavour has helped direct her own artistic practice in the mediums of collage, oil paint and performance which focus on themes of memory and identity. Joanna is the founder and creative director of The Feathers of Daedalus Circus, a new contemporary circus company creating surrealist story adaptations.
At Studio Kura, Joanna has built a series of works that are an exploration of place through differing times, examining cultural and geographical changes and consistencies over the passage of time. The electricity cables stand prominent; a symbol of Japan’s vulnerability to earthquakes and a beacon of modernity against Itoshima’s timeless landscape. Her painting and photographic transfer techniques evoke a nostalgic sentiment and feeling of the ephemeral.
